Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “key.” Use it any way you’d like. Have fun!
Some books remain a part of our lives. In the earlier days, I used to get books from the library and a loved book became a precious memory. It was not possible to buy books. So libraries were and are a very nice part of life. I have re-read many books many, many times over the years and have never got bored with the story. One such book is The Keys of the Kingdom by A J Cronin. I loved that book. Actually I liked all books by this author and it has been quite some time since I have read his books. This prompt immediately brought this book to mind. I have not read it in recent years but I think I will read it again one of these days. It is the story of Father Francis Chisholm.
From books I come to another important thing in our lives- keys. Keys to the front door of our homes. A few years ago we returned home one evening after being away for three days. I had the keys to the front door in my hand. This is the grill door of our verandah. I was shocked to see that there was no lock. I was feeling uneasy. We walked in and to our horror saw that the lock of the wooden door had been cut very neatly. Robbers in our house !! Oh my god. We went to our room and saw two cupboards had been emptied, the fridge was open and upstairs one cupboard had been emptied. But nothing was taken because there was nothing to take. But we were feeling so bad because someone unknown to us had entered our house in our absence. Hopefully no one will enter our house in such a way again. And we will always be able to use the keys to our house without hesitation 😊.
